Curtis Lumber Wins Gold at 2017 Ozzie Awards
Partners In Leadership awards family-owned lumber company prestigious 2017 Ozzie Award for exemplary commitment to culture
Temecula, Calif., May 31, 2017 (Newswire.com) - Partners In Leadership, the Accountability Training and Culture Change Company, awarded the 2017 Gold Ozzie in the family-owned company category to Curtis Lumber, a provider of high-quality lumber and top-notch customer service. The Ozzie Awards celebrate organizations that demonstrate excellence in accountability, leadership and culture through implementation of Partners In Leadership programs.
“The Curtis Lumber team is a tremendous group of individuals and future leaders,” said Ron Paul, Senior Consultant for Partners In Leadership. “This is a wonderful affirmation of the good work that they’re doing and the innovation to drive a culture of accountability at Curtis Lumber.”
By implementing this interactive tool, employees are beginning to associate the boards with empowerment — knowing that their efforts matter, that they are valued, and most importantly, have the ability to impact our key results.
Curtis Lumber Spokesperson
Curtis Lumber has successfully trained over 550 employees in the Accountability Builder™ program (formerly known as Self Track®). When this training unearthed a lack of connection between individual teams and overall organizational goals, leadership implemented a simple and elegant solution. They placed dry-erase boards in every department, with the company's top three goals and progress made, along with space for employees to identify accountability gaps. Employees are encouraged to express not only the actions that cause those gaps, but the underlying beliefs that lead to those actions.
These "Solve It® Boards” have become a key communication tool for fostering inter-departmental collaboration, and are now the core of a larger initiative, which includes procedures to follow up on employee feedback and internally crafted workshops to reinforce the positive cultural changes they are seeing.
"Truthfully, our story is just beginning," said a spokesperson for Curtis Lumber. "By implementing this interactive tool, employees are beginning to associate the boards with empowerment — knowing that their efforts matter, that they are valued, and most importantly, have the ability to impact our key results."
Partners In Leadership is pleased to award Curtis Lumber the 2017 Gold Ozzie Award for their commitment to cultural transformation.
